I am so excited to announce the launch of Law School for Wedding Professionals — a new kind of workshop focusing on the legalities of owning, protecting and growing your wedding industry business. I’ll be hitting the road starting in September for a twelve-city workshop tour that includes: Washington, D.C., Atlanta, New York City, Boston, Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco, Phoenix, Dallas, Seattle, Orlando and Los Angeles. Class sizes are limited in order to allow for more personal interaction and tailored instruction based on the specifics of your business. Each workshop runs from 9am to 6pm, and includes breakfast and lunch. We will cover a ton of material in the workshops, including structuring your business, protecting your brand through trademarks, social media law, copyrights and employment issues, and your admission fee also includes the review and revision of your client contract (or preparation of a new contract if you do not have one), with one-on-one attorney counseling and drafting specific to your business’s needs. Your new or revised contract will be completed within 14 days of your workshop attendance date, helping to ensure that you and your business are protected as you approach the busy engagement/booking season.
Head on over to the Law School for Wedding Professionals website for more details, dates, etc., and feel free to send any questions to email@example.com. I am also excited to be offering one scholarship to your choice of workshop cities; to enter, leave a comment below explaining how Law School for Wedding Professionals would help your business, and one winner will be selected at random on September 6, 2011. If your city is not included in this leg of the Law School for Wedding Professionals tour, comment below, email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @wedprolawschool, and we will work to make it happen!
UPDATE: Because the workshops are quickly filling up, if you want to secure your spot (and the early registration fee) now, you can go on and register for your city AND also enter to win the scholarship. If your name is selected on September 6th, your admission fee will be refunded.
UPDATE #2: Erin of Bustle is the winner of the Law School for Wedding Pros scholarship!
